Mother's Day Cards

A young friend is attending a school where they are having a card stall for Mother's Day. She asked me to make some cards for the stall. Here's the first one. I used Nicola's Sketch #7 again and have some more in similar colours to make up. The cardstock is Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White, and Cord'ination's Harbour, and Urban Lily's Inner Me Collection - Dream. The butterfly is from the Stampin' Up! set 'Merci', and the flowers were given to me. I pinned 'em down with some Bold Bright brads from Stampin' Up! Some paper piercing, colouring with Watercolor Wonders, gold and white gel pens, and hand lettering finished it off.
